Get more out of your maritime music experience with high-performance JL Audio marine speakers. These massive M880-CCX 8.8" marine speakers combine durable design with outstanding sound reproduction. You can mount them in your boat's cockpit or bulkhead walls, either as stand-alones or in conjunction with a subwoofer.
These rugged speakers deliver powerful output that'll cut through the combination of wind, water, and engine noise. The weatherproof cone is suspended in a durable synthetic rubber surround for great sound and long life. The UV-resistant polymer basket protects the entire structure and ensures that the white grilles will look factory-fresh even after years of punishing sunlight. All JL Audio marine speakers are designed to meet or exceed industry standards for salt, fog, and moisture resistance.
The polymer basket protects the sub's inner works, and the UV-resistant grille will stay white for years.
These big, beefy coaxial speakers offer a huge performance advantage over conventional 6.5" marine coaxials and even JL's already-impressive 7.7" models. Thanks to 36% more cone area and almost double the excursion capability, the M880-CCX's are capable of +6 dB greater low-frequency output than the M770-CCX speakers.
The bass is so impressive that the M880-CCX really doesn't need a subwoofer to pump out serious low-frequency thump. But if you do use a subwoofer, you'll hear vastly better dynamics and mid-bass impact. If you want big, full sound on your boat, these speakers, combined with a subwoofer, are a great choice.
The 1.2" treated-silk dome tweeters render brilliant highs, and they're mounted directly to the grilles for optimal sound radiation. You'll hear all the details of your music, even when the throttle is forward and you're skimming over the waves. High-quality, true 2-way crossovers make the woofer and tweeter work in perfect concert. You don't have to worry about mounting the crossovers — they're attached directly to the woofer basket.

Expensive, but really great sounding speakers. Bass is exceptional from a Coax. Don't skimp on power supply.
The speakers were bought from the scratch and dent section and I am very pleased with the condition of them. One speaker had a mild scratch on it, buts thats all. You would think they were brand new.

Marine Tested: JL Audio's marine speakers are tested in ultraviolet chambers (to simulate years of sun exposure) and salt fog chambers (to simulate years of exposure to salt-water environments).
Woofers: The JL Audio M880-CCX-CG-WH are 8.8" speakers (8.8" is the nominal size, they don't actually measure 8.8") and the woofers have approximately 36% more cone area than typical 6.5" designs. The cones are injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene with synthetic rubber surrounds; they are specifically formulated with UV inhibitors for marine use. The woofers also use marine-grade synthetic fiber spiders with progressive roll designs to withstand high humidity.
Tweeters: The tweeters are 1.2" silk domes, specially treated to withstand UV exposure and salt water spray. The dome tweeters use neodymium magnets to improve efficiency and are Ferrofluid-cooled and damped for better response and power handling. The crossover offers two tweeter output options, flat and +2 dB (adjusted by changing a jumper wire position).
Polymer Basket and Grille: The specifically engineered polymer baskets and grilles are corrosion and UV-resistant. The basket encloses the woofer's motor system to prevent internal corrosion.
Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL Audio's proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, the M880 motor remains linear over a long excursion range, and also maintains a stable fixed magnetic field in the gap over a wide power range. The result is reduced distortion, faithfully reproduced transients, and tight, clean, articulate bass.
Crossover: The JL audio marine speakers utilize a true 2-way crossover network with 1st order low-pass and 2nd order high-pass circuits. The crossover network also features a polyswitch solid-state tweeter protection circuit to prevent tweeter failures. The crossover offers two tweeter output options, flat and +2 dB.
Infinite-Baffle Operation: The M880 is optimized for infinite baffle operation, so it can be installed in a variety of locations without the need for a dedicated enclosure.
